Dear Isaac,


You have been such a joy to us this past year.

We simply adore you!


You are just what this family needed- happy, smiley, bubbly, easy going…delightful!


You learned to sit up in Idaho, to crawl in Manhattan, to walk in New Jersey, and to run in Oregon.  What a year you’ve had, baby!


I love that you wake up the morning with a smile and squeal.

I love that you smile and reach for strangers (even homeless people on subways!)


I love that in these photos your pants are unbuttoned to make room for your belly (sweatpants are pretty much all you can wear) and that your thick baby body is just bustin’ out of that 12-18 month top.

I love that you are so curious and such a go-getter that I had to hold you down to get a lot of these pictures.


I love that you are still nursing. (I have officially made it to my breastfeeding goal!)




I love how you watch and laugh at your brother.


And how you are so quick to forgive and forget when he pushes you down.


I love, I love, I love…you!


This year has been wonderful and we can’t imagine life without you.

Happy Birthday to my Baby!!

Happy Birthday!!!!

It has been quite the year. What a joy he is for you - I know you are just so happy to have that chubby little ray of sunshine in your lives.

Just the cutest photos - I was looking forward to them all day.

By the way, T Rex asked where Miss Caitlin and Joseph were while we were at the zoo today. Sniff, sniff...

He's a keeper, that's for sure. How did you luck out and get two such fun-loving kids?

Caitlin said...

Happy birthday, bud!!!! One year already... where does the time go?

Jen said...

I can't tell you how happy this baby makes me, especially since he can't button his pants. :)

Way to capture that happy little one year old baby boy! Great photo shoot!

Hard to believe it has been a year already ... and what a year it has been for your little family! So full of changes and travels. He is so so so cute and happy and you're so very blessed.
